Portraits: Silhouettes

     Remember that we already know what a silohuette is: it is the image of a person, an object or scene represented as a solid shape of a single colour, usually black, its edges matching the outline of the subject (Wikipedia). 

So let's put it into practice!!!

  1. We will tape a paper to the wall and had them sit on a chair showing their profile.
  2. A light will throw a shadow on the paper (white or coloured) that we will trace with a pencil.
  3. We will cut along the line to get our silhouette.

Colour Contrast

    Josef Albers' book Interaction of Colour (1970) is widely influential. Albers claims that colours react when they are next to another colour. We should never consider the characteristics of a colour as absolute, but always relating to the enviroment.

One page from Interaction of Colour.
    Contrast can be defined  as “the difference in visual properties that makes an object (or its representation in an image) distinguishable from other objects and the background.” In plain English that could be described at its most basic level as “things which look different from one another”.
